Point Pattern Analysis is already used in medical research, socio-economics and a huge number of related fields. Due to the nature of data on historical monuments is apparent to apply these methods in the context of analysing such monuments. The objective of this paper is, to propose explanatory approach to analyse point patterns using the example of historical buildings of Mexico City and Valley of Mexico. The focus of this work in progress, is on the examination of the underlying spatial pattern of historic monuments in Mexico Valley, and to evaluate if the emerging patterns match facts from scientific literature in the field of History. Key findings of this work in progress are, that the point patterns found can be explained by historic processes. Hence, this indicates that point pattern analyses can help to gain a deeper insight in historical data and processes alike.
